This is why we do not claim cruelty-free on our packaging. We do not believe these tests are necessary to evaluate safety or performance. But today, they won’t accept alternative non-animal testing methods. We remain steadfast and will continue to advocate for alternative methods to end animal tests in the industry.
"The Humane Society of the United States has collaborated with P&G scientists for over 20 years to successfully advocate for national and international changes in animal testing regulations and practices. Technological and scientific advances are providing the basis for an entirely new safety assessment paradigm. Eliminating animal testing is an ambitious goal. But working together, a coalition of animal protection groups and committed corporations can make this goal a reality."
